Well my bike has been the victim of multiple robberies:
The RAM mounting system (I was gone from 5pm to 5:30 wtf?)
My bike cover (tarp), eventhough it had a whole in it (repaired with duct tape)
I saw a kid trying to knock it over from my center stand in the middle of the night (I think I don't need to mention that I ran downstairs giving him the same treatment)
My bike has been robbed in itself: I came back from a 2 week trip, unloaded my luggage and brought it up in my appartment... when I came back it was gone. 3 Teens (age 14,16, 19) had pushed it over a KM into a courtyard. After 2 hours of searching I found them before the police did... knocked the 16 year old down and the others ran away, The cops came and only the "adult" one got charged... What happend to education?

Anyway the solution to all this? I rent a garage 12kms away (too expensive in the city), so each time I want to ride my bike I need to take 25min of subway and than a 20min walk. Don't need to mention that the walk is a pain in the ass ATGATT

Oh and for the short time that I had a car (2 months) they broke in and stole 20 liters of german beer that I got for my party. Son's of B!tches.

All this to say that you don't need to worry for the scooter as long as you don't have a bad nabourhood.
I've been victim of this too. I bought a tin shed to store my scooter after someone cut the wires to my heated grips. Considering most hooligans have never seen heated grips on a bike they probably thought they were cutting brake cables which is a scary prospect... Imagine forgetting to check and riding away, straight through a busy junction with no brakes!!! Assholes...

Hopefully I'll be back in Germany in about 2 years
Why are you staying in France if it's such a pain to be living there?

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

So you obviously take advantage of a country that provides you with an education you can use but you have nothing good to say about it?

...Wow! You've got no shame.

I think he pays for his education/study.

In any case, he doesn't have to be a shamed of what he thinks and says.

He should be using the knowledge gained from schooling against those buggers who did what they did to him.

That's what I think.

Senseless acts of vandalism based purely on envy, greed or jealousy are considered unwelcome in damn near every society anywhere I've ever been.
